Sliding a group of fields

Hey All,

 

I'm trying to build a layout page for printing. The page is broken down horizontally like this...

 

Record 1: Field 1     Field 2     Field 3     Field 4     Field 5     Field 6

Record 2: Field 1     Field 2     Field 3     Field 4     Field 5     Field 6

 

Field 1-3 and Field 6 are all fields that consistently have about one line of information in them, but Field 4 and Field 5 can include many more lines of information in certain records. I've tried to use the Sliding options to get Field 4 and Field 5 to auto size to fit the amount of text in the field, but in doing so the remaining fields no longer conform to the size of Field 4 or Field 5. Additionally if I apply the Sliding option to all the fields, Fields 1-3 and Field 6 size to fit their single line of information, while Field 4 and Field 5 remain larger.

 

Is there a way to get all six fields to size to the greatest common denominator? I've tried grouping the fields and applying the slide to the group, locking the fields, etc, and I haven't been able to find any hints in the forums.

 

Thanks very much for the help.
